Understand yourself and your client better
What is supervision
Supervision is a reflective dialogue and coaching process between coach and supervisor where the coach can reflect on the success stories and challenges of his or her coaching work in a secure environment.
Supervision gives coaches the opportunity to:
Raise awareness of personal reactions to client work and deal with what the coach does not hear, see or feel or allow to experience;
better understanding of the client, the client system, the relationships and dynamics between stakeholders;
to ensure the quality, ethics and compliance of clients with their work;
ensure their continuous learning and professional development;
Get support for your client work.
International coaching associations ANSE, AC, ICF and EMCC recommend full-time professional coaches to participate in supervision.
The EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) believes that coaches should take at least 1 hour of supervision per 35 coaching hours, including a minimum of 4 hours per year evenly distributed over the year.
